Fundraiser auction for LGBTQ refugee sponsorship by Everyone's Sister

Click here to visit the auction, on now until midnight on December 2.

Everyone’s Sister is an Ottawa-based volunteer group devoted to privately sponsoring women refugees fleeing war, violence, and persecution, and empowering them to use their skills and abilities to successfully resettle in our community.

The group is seeking to sponsor two incredible LGBTQ siblings and their high-spirited teenage sister who are currently living in great precarity as refugees in Kenya.
